64. Eliminate the assistant principals at the middle schools
Eliminate the assistant principals at the middle schools and have the counselors do the discipline of the students.
Although school counselors do provide some administrative oversight, they are not credentialed to discipline students for violations in Ed. Code; disciplining / suspending students for Ed Code violations requires an administrative credential. Additionally, there is much discussion within the school counseling community whether being the school's disciplinarian is an appropriate role for a school counselor.
